This table is a reclaimed pine dining table. I love working with reclaimed lumber although it can be a challenge sometimes with joinery. The aprons are attached to the legs via mortise and tenon and supported with through dowels for a little added strength and added aesthetics. The top is attached with “Z” clips to allow for movement.

The size is 36 inches by 72 inches. The finish process was very easy. I just sanded down the surfaces just enough to remove the splinters but not enough to disturb the character. The finish is natural and is only 3 coats of a satin acrylic poly sprayed on!!

The character of the wood really stands out and the average person will never get how nice the joinery is. Great Job!
